We know that college can be challenging for our undergraduate students. Iowa is working to normalize support-seeking behavior for all students in all areas of their academic and personal matters. CLAS UP has partnered with campus partners who offer resources for students and has created a series of Student Success Workshops for undergraduate students in CLAS. These supportive sessions will run throughout the fall semester and with topics based on direct feedback from students on what they would like to see: learning strategies, test-taking tips, stress reduction, wellness, and money management advice. These sessions are FREE and open to all undergraduate students.

Feel free to provide this information to students by email, in your departments and programs, in your courses and when you meet one on one with students. We need your help in getting the word out!

Please encourage students to check out the full list of sessions and sign up today:
